I read the books a long time ago, so have an idea of the premise but don't remember the details. I'm five or six episodes into Altered Carbon, and it's not... bad. But, it's also not great. I don't feel compelled to watch it; it's more of an obligation at this point.
I don't object to the gratuitous T&A, or even the over the top violence, but I expected better acting and a not-so-transparent plot.
And for a minute can we discuss Ortega? She's a lieutenant, ffs. Why is she handling her own cases and not supervising anyone? If one of my officers spoke to me the way the cops on the show do to her they'd be eating an insubordination charge, not to mention my boot, faster than they could spin. (I understand I'm complaining about this in a show that takes for granted people taking over other bodies...)
